Sorry to see that Spud has passed away. I have know him since the 50's when we were the few teen to play golf. My condolences to his family.

I’m so sorry Morgan for your loss. I witnessed first hand the stress your father’s illness had on you and your loved ones. All the many trips you made to Savannah to meet with doctors, help him with his care and even transferring him to Jacksonville facility for rehab and to live with your family till he was well enough to return, while still caring for your husband and three little ones was a testament to your love and devotion to your Dad and to your strength. Your Dad loved you so much and it meant so much to him to know you were there. You will surely miss him, but have comfort in knowing he is in a much better place. So sorry you had to be alone at the time of his passing, but so happy you were there for him. May God Bless You and Yours??
